. "The Lustful Turk" (1968) is a low-budget, independent sexploitation film written and produced by David F. Friedman and directed by Byron Mabe. One of many "nudie-cutie" softcore adult films Friedman made in the '60s and '70s. It is part of a series of colorful costume dramas he made (see the trailer for "The Head Mistress" on this archive).
Based on the notorious 1828 novel, this trailer purports to show a behind-the-scenes out take of an erotic flagellation scene gone wrong -- which looks totally staged.
